DART advocate discusses work to save abuse victims

Terrie Queen Autrey.jpg

“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
— Frederick
Buechner
I love this quote, which aptly describes the happy fit that occurs when we find the work we are meant to do.
As one of DART’s founders, who has had the good fortune of working in recent years for the agency I imagined nearly 30 years ago, I feel what Buechner describes here.
I have carried a heartfelt passion for the issue of domestic violence since first working at a shelter in 1978.

in
Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

Ryan Allen wasn’t drafted by an NFŁ team following an All-American career at Louisiana Tech University.
But the only two-time winner of the Ray Guy Award was determined to play at the next level.
Allen opted to be a free agent and evaluate several teams interested in his skills and decided to choose the New England Patriots.
It turned out to be the right choice for both sides.
Allen, now in his fifth season, is one of the NFL’s consistently best punters and the Patriots … well, they are the Patriots.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints face the prospect of seeing their season end where it began.
That is, unless they’ve improved enough to turn the tables on the Minnesota Vikings, who beat New Orleans convincingly in Week 1.
“That feels like ages and ages ago,” Brees said of the 29-19 loss in Minnesota, describing the difference between the Saints then and now as “night and day.”

Welcome, 2018, and pass me the chocolate

Sallie Rose Hollis 2017.jpg

The HuffPost headline hit me by surprise: “Why You Should Never Make Your Bed.”
So it turns out I’ve been doing something good all these years and didn’t know it.
This news was especially eye-catching after all the interest generated by the New York Times bestseller “Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life ... and Maybe the World.” I even talked about that book in an earlier “Journey.”
Just to be sure about the negative aspects of what the world has long considered a morning ritual, I checked other sources and, yep, there was corroboration:

Kyle Williams: a true warrior for Buffalo Bills

Davis, Ok 2015.jpg

Futility take a knee.
Kyle Williams and the Buffalo Bills ended their much talked about drought in the NFL with a regular-season finale win at the Miami Dolphins last weekend to reach the NFL playoffs.
The score, honestly, was somewhat secondary to the bigger picture, given the meaning given for Williams and his team.
For the first time in his 12-year career, the former Ruston High and LSU star will walk on to the field today in a postseason game.
And the Bills?
They’re in the playoffs for the first time in 17 years.

It was a total team effort by the Louisiana Tech men’s basketball team on Saturday night as they put an end to its three-game losing skid by having six Bulldogs score in double figures which led to a 97-88 victory over Texas-El Paso in front of 3,654 fans inside the Thomas Assembly Center.
What made the scoring output even more impressive for Tech (10-7, 1-3 Conference USA) was playing with just eight players as two regular starters DaQuan Bracey and Joniah White were not available.
